    I just hear from my nearest ToysRUs that the Reissued G1 Soundwave has been discontinued.

    Thank God my brother and I managed to get him before they discontinued him, or I would have been really pissed.

    Nothing strange here. There was a set number to be produced and shipped, and those are gone.

    I thought these had been discontinued for awhile now. I've never even seen a shelf tag for one of these in a brick and mortar TRU, and I've been to many over the last year.

    Those have been gone for awhile now. Sometimes you can get lucky and still find one when TRU pulls out some of the back stock to get rid of.

    They probably would've done all that by Christmas tho


    I missed out on him (boo) but I still have the Takara book version of him & Soundblaster

    The last time I saw TRU soundwave in the store near me was July 2007 - it was priced at $30. Very happy with mine.

    They had this sale going on when I got him, so I got him for only 25 bucks. My grandma insisted on it. And then there was this burly guy who said he was going to sell them on eBay and only left the one with the dented side, but still got Soundwave. I think when I do a new shelf arrangement I'll just put him one a shelf to himself.

    It's possible there's one out there from Wave 2, but sadly, I think Soundwave is gone....of course, someone here could probably whip up a sale for those who missed Soundwave.

    I never saw Soundwave at retail. I've always known that I'd have to get it online at a markup.

    I'm still not happy about it...but so it goes.

    I didn't know he was still continued. It's been a year since I thought they stopped officially shipping him. He only pops up as stated, when a warehouse gets cleared.

    The last time I saw one at retail was almost a year ago. I found one when he was first sighted, and then a second one (for my brother) during the "second run". I figured he was discontinued a long time ago as well.

    I wish I would have picked up an extra (to keep sealed) the initial time I saw him at retail, as that was the only time I saw more than 1 on the shelf.

    Thought they were done with him a loooong time ago too, I only ever seen him once at retail, and frequent 3-4 TRUs. Glad I got him when I did, but to be honest I like the Encore version better.

    I got one but that was the only one I ever saw at any TRU. They would vanish within minutes of being put out.
